2013 Year In Review In Pictures

Thursday, December 12, 2013 - 00:00

Dear Friends,

As we gather with family and friends this festive time of year, I want to wish everyone a Happy Holiday.

This is always a hopeful time, and while 2013 has been difficult for many Californians, it also offers a chance to look ahead to brighter days.  Our economy has stabilized; we have renewed our support for public education and are committed to restoring the promise of a golden state.

I hope that Californians of all faiths take this opportunity to reach out to those who are less fortunate, those who are alone or ill this holiday season. Your generosity and your spirit of volunteerism helps make California the great state that it is.

In that spirit, Melanie and I wish you and your family a year of health and happiness.
